A programme intended to provide young persons with mentorship and guidance to help them forge careers in the health field is likely to soon become a permanent feature of the Health Ministry.This ambitious proposal was highlighted by Health Minister Dr Leslie Ramsammy, recently, when he met with several young persons who were enrolled at the recently exposed bogus nursing school which was promoted under the name,Authentic Jerseys Wholesale
, the Inter-American Medical Centre or the Inter-American Nursing School.A few weeks ago the Minister divulged that the school was involved in fraudulent activities and that it was not accredited by the Health Ministry. Reports are that the owner of the school had also assured persons desirous of engaging the various medical programmes offered that once they are certified they would not only be able to elevate themselves at several local institutions but even be recruited to work in the United States.Some of the students listen intently as they are enlightened of the requirements to undertake the nursing programme offered by the Health Ministry. The fact that some of them were not able to enrol in similar programmes offered by the Ministry in the past did not dissuade them from spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to enrol at the school.However,Cheap NFL Jerseys China

, several of the students confronted the school’s owner and with the assistance of the police were able to reclaim a percentage of the money they had paid.Having recognised the dilemma of the mostly young persons and the fact that they had a yearning to be a part of the health field, Minister Ramsammy had streamlined plans to have them be considered for programmes offered by his Ministry.On Saturday, as assured by the Minister two weeks ago, a career day event was held in the compound of the Health Ministry where the youths were afforded information about the various training programmes offered by the Ministry and the relevant qualifications they require.“At the end of this exercise my training team and I will meet because I believe that the time has come for the Ministry of Health, working with IDCE, and other organisations to make it possible for any young person to enter the health field,” the Minister said.And this move was noted as very important since, according to the Minister, “If young people do not have qualifications we should have a programme developed at the Ministry to make these young people eligible for some of the other programmes we have.”For this reason, he disclosed that the Health Ministry will be heading back to the ‘drawing board’ to develop a programme that is going to be guided by proficiency examinations.Once persons are able to pass the examinations, Minister Ramsammy related, they will be able to enter programmes such as Plaster of Paris Technician, Patient Care Assistant, Community Dental Therapist, Community Health Worker and various levels of phlebotomy laboratory technician programmes.Director of Standards and Technical Services within the Ministry, Dr Yvette Irving,Wholesale Jerseys From China
, who also graced the event Saturday, related that the main purpose of the undertaking was to examine the qualifications of the young persons with a view of hopefully getting them into the medical field.“If they qualify for any of the programmes that might be soon coming or if they are not qualified we will give them guidance as to how they could get into the programmes…whether it is to advise them to do CXC or to get additional CXC…”According to Dr Irving,Camisetas Fc Barcelona Baratas

, even as she noted that the programme probably is one that was begging to be started for some time now.In this regard, she speculated that the Ministry’s attempt at the guidance strategy could be boosted by setting up health booths in this regard when health fairs are hosted.And while the intent is to guide and train persons, Dr Irving asserted that the move is also geared at providing more human resources for the sector.Dr Irving who has operated within the Ministry as a medical technologist for more than 20 years expressed the urgency for the sector to be better supported by the persons that it trains.
